A Sun Prairie man who was walking on Interstate 39/90/94 near Windsor in Dane County was killed when he was struck by a semi-trailer truck early Friday, the State Patrol said.

The crash happened about 3:45 a.m. on southbound I-39/90/94 at milepost 135, a little north of the Highway 151 interchange, Lt. Edward Witkiewicz said in a report.

State troopers found the 42-year-old man who was hit by the semi dead. It was not known why the man was walking on I-39/90/94, Witkiewicz said.

The 60-year-old Bristol man who was driving the 2016 Volvo semi stopped at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, Witkiewicz said.

No names had been released.

Southbound I-39/90/94 was closed at Highway 51 and rerouted to re-enter I-39/90/94 via Highway 30, before being reopened at 8:52 a.m., the state Department of Transportation said.

The State Patrol was assisted by the Madison Fire Department, Madison police and the Dane County Sheriff’s Office and Medical Examiner’s Office.
